The eye-catching bright green, deeply indented, curly leaves are a tasty & visual delight. They will blend with other salad ingredients without overpowering them as the flavour is not too pungent. Pick them young for an even milder flavour. This is a slower growing variety than many. Price for 50 seeds.
SOW: from spring to autumn. Starting the seeds in modules enables you to transplant at the 2/3 leaf stage; for really good crops in winter transplant under cover.
GROW: space at 10cm for little leaves. If given space this variety can reach 40-45cm tall and will need at least 30cm spacing to do this. Keep watered in very dry weather. You can overwinter Green Fire under cloches, in a cold frame or unheated greenhouse and enjoy fresh greens in the spring
EAT: enjoy for salads or for cooking. Any flowering shoots can be cut and treated like you would broccoli.
